Leadership Study Abroad: Conservation and Leadership Trip


Event Date: 
Tue, 05/05/2015 - Wed, 05/27/2015
Event Location: 
Costa Rica and Belize

The McDonough Center will be taking a group of students to Costa Rica and Belize to study Conservation within the context of leadership. Through this trip, we will study the ways leaders work with followers within their culture to achieve the goal of ecological conservation and sustainability.

Trip Description: We will meet with leaders from The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and local environmentalists. We will also swim a coastal reef (photo above from the 2012 trip), hike through rainforests, and visit Mayan ruins. Guest professor Benjamin W. Redekop, author of Leadership for Environmental Sustainability, will be travelling with us. We will be using his text as part of the course. In addition, we will perform a service project focused on environmental conservation.

This trip is part of a three-credit hour course (LEAD 350: Leadership Study Abroad, 3 credit hours). It fulfills the General Education requirement for Marietta College students. It can also be counted as an elective for the Certificate and Minor in Leadership Studies, as well as the international experiential education requirement for the International Leadership Studies Major.
